My criticisms from May’s feedback thread
still apply. I’ve seen no improvements to Last Chaos’s gameplay or support. Indeed, overall, things have gotten worse. The server mergers went reasonably smoothly (aside from forcing players to install Ignite to obtain character rename cards). However, AGE still fails to address the causes of the game’s decline.
PvP in LC has always been lacking. The introduction of ex-rogues is not only the most unimaginative update yet but has made PvP even less fun, even less engaging and even less competitive. The premise? Copy/paste the most popular and overpowered class in the game (the rogue) and add magic skills. Profit!
The relationship between damage and defence in PvP
(something that was pointed out
to Aeria at least as early as March 2009) remains the most glaring flaw in PvP in December 2012.
In November, the publishing team lost yet another GM, gmebilfish
, to another Aeria title.
Staff and volunteers are still overwhelmingly (there are notable exceptions) dismissive of constructive criticism.
I am spending my time and money elsewhere.
